Food and drink

Get a taste of what you can expect when it comes to dining and drinking onboard.

From Asian eateries and Spanish tapas restaurants to sizzling steakhouses and international buffets, every ship in the Marella Cruises fleet has at least seven globetrotting restaurants onboard. There are plenty of options for between-meal bites, too – think midnight buffets and grab-and-go options.

You’ll get access to at least four different restaurants as part of your All Inclusive cruise. And if you fancy treating yourself, you can dine in our speciality restaurants for a little extra – they serve up everything from fine French cuisine to flavourful pan-Asian curries.

When it comes to drinks, you’ll have the run of at least seven onboard bars. Mid-morning coffees, after-dinner tipples and cocktails on deck are all taken care of. Every bar’s stocked with a selection of wines, spirits, beers and Prosecco.

Bars and restaurants

Here’s a snapshot of some of our favourite bars and restaurants. Just so you know, the sample menus featured here are just a guide – actual menus may vary between ships.

Latitude 53

Latitude 53 is the main restaurant onboard Marella Explorer, Marella Explorer 2 and Marella Voyager. It’s all waiter service here, and floor-to-ceiling windows mean the views are top class. Menu-wise, expect traditional dishes with a modern twist.


You’ll find this classy Italian restaurant on the first floor of Latitude 53 – the main restaurant on Marella Explorer, Marella Explorer 2 and Marella Voyager. The menu’s full of regional dishes made with authentic ingredients.

Snack Shack

The Snack Shack is just the ticket for bites to eat by the pool. It’s nestled on the pool deck, and serves light options and grab-and-go snacks throughout the day.

Surf & Turf

True to its name, Surf & Turf’s menu includes the likes of steak, seafood, chicken and lamb dishes, as well as a long list of sides. This is one of our speciality restaurants, so there’s a charge to dine here, and we recommend making a reservation in advance.

Squid & Anchor

The Squid & Anchor is designed to look like a traditional British pub, and lines up a drinks offering to match. In the evenings, you can enjoy everything from live bands and musicians to interactive game shows and quizzes.


If you’re after something bubbly, this bar is for you. You can sip glasses of Champagne* or Prosecco while listening to the sounds of a pianist, and there are handy ‘press for bubbles’ buttons dotted around. You’ll find Flutes on Marella Voyager and Marella Explorer 2.

*Just so you know, Champagne isn’t included as part of the standard All Inclusive package or the Premium All Inclusive package.
